Collage and Painting

AMOK by Nancy Nikkal.jpg
WORRY by Nancy Egol Nikkal

My work is described as lyrical abstraction. My primary studio practice is mixed media collage with painting, drawing, printmaking and found paper media. My work is tactile and about the sense of touch. I see and feel the ways papers and paint are in relationship and balance each other with subtle tension, see two recent series – Curvy Geometric and Metro.

She is an accomplished guitarist, composer, lyricist and humorist with a lifelong career of live performance and recording for both children and adults.  Her music features melodic finger-style compositions, inventive percussion-isms, moving string-quartets and lyrical ingenuity. Her recognitions include: A Gold Parents’ Choice Award, Grand Prize Winner/Connecticut Comedy Festival, Outstanding Artistic Achievement Award/Connecticut Song Writers Association.

Ceramic Mixed Media Sculptures, Ferro-Cement Sculptures

Astrhelia by Naomi Teppich.jpg

Looking at plants, shells, sea creatures, fungi, bark, and cacti inspire my art. I build small to medium-sized ceramic mixed media sculptures, and also large public ferro-cement sculptures. My materials for these large shell sculptures are stoneware fired in several different kilns. I use hand and electric tools to design my works. My pieces are filled with textures, glazes, and clay colors.
My surrounding environment inspires my ideas. I am influenced by rural settings and observations from my travels. The challenge of almost duplicating these organic forms that I find in nature or in photos is enjoyable for me.

I trying to Intervene a place, a speech or idea with mix techniques and concept to give a visual and material perspective about site specific in two ways: social insertion (we or they with) which include participants or collaborations and personal insertion (me) that means introspective or individual works about my point of view.

Nazanin Hedayat Munroe, M.F.A. Ph.D.

Textile Artist, Art Historian

Shirin by Dr. Nazanin Hedayat Munroe.png
Layli by Dr. Nazanin Hedayat Munroe.png

Although I’ve been a textile artist my whole career, I am also a storyteller. Inspired by the Persian poets of my ancestry, my own work is often in conversation with literary characters, who were sometimes depicted on garments. Exploring and reinterpreting the application of Persian motifs and themes, I work with garments as a metaphor of the human condition. The handmade textiles are patterned with historical iconography and Sufi poetry using manual and digital techniques, juxtaposing ancient and modern processes. Garments are photographed or videoed to create a personal narrative, and often displayed within panels creating an enclosed space, representing the mind of the wearer.

I invite viewers into the space, so they can contribute to the work by sharing their own story. Relating to the theme presented in each work, viewers add flowers to paper gardens, write letters to fourteenth century poets, or color textile motifs to add to a collective work accompanying my own. Themes range from love and marriage, to pathfinding and mystic contemplation. Although the references in the work are specific and historically grounded, I strive for the messages to be universal and accessible to viewers.

Black like That a painting by Osiris Munir

When there is a canvas, piece of wood, brick, or even flat paper, it feels as though I am touching a living breathing entity. When I close my eyes, I see a plethora of color, patterns, and designs while moving my hands simultaneously. Using pencils, pens, markers and both acrylic and oil, (with a preference for oil) I simply move brushes, palette knives, and at times fingers, based on the sensation that I feel through my fingers and the colors that I see with my eyes. Usually a piece will come to life once my hands touch a surface.
I am always inspired by what others see, feel, or experience upon viewing my work.

Pam Smilow

Mixed Media on Canvas or Paper, Printmaking (Linocut, Monoprint)

painting by Pam Smilow

I have always had trouble writing about my art. I can say it much better in paint. I can, though, describe my process, which I consider close to that of a jazz musician improvising. I do not hear a symphony in my head and then put it down. Instead, I build on every stroke I do, starting with the gesso and building up layer after layer after that. My surfaces are defined by and reflect the thickness of that build up. For my vocabulary, I draw heavily on childhood memories, on many personal experiences throughout the years, and my travels. Nature continues to be one of my biggest inspirations.

When I make a painting, I seek to create a little piece of beauty and a refuge from our busy and chaotic lives, an inspiration to bring a little bit of joy into the universe through color, composition and content. I see each piece of my work as one step on a continuum, each painting not precious unto itself but as an ongoing journey. I consider myself very lucky to get up every day and enjoy what I do.
